So I got tired of store bought salsa, and wanted to try to make my own. Most salsas seemed to have too much vinegar in there or something and I was missing the fresh taste. So here's what I came up with. My husband loves it. It is easy and fast to make, just make sure you have fresh, ripe ingredients. This is not a chunky salsa. And if you want it hotter, add in a Serrano pepper to the food processor.
8 vine ripe tomatoes - quartered
2 jalapenos - just cut the top off, keep the seeds in!
3 cloves of garlic - rough chop
juice of 1 lime
1 medium onion - diced
2 tbsp EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
1/2 cup cilantro - chopped
salt and pepper
In a food processor, combine tomatoes, jalapenos, garlic and lime juice. Blend. In a skillet, heat oil and saute onions til translucent, about 3-5 minutes. Add tomato mixture and simmer, reducing it by about half. Let cool and then add in cilantro and salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
